UvA Thesis Prize 2022

The UvA Thesis Prize was presented on Tuesday 28 June. This year, as a very special exception, the jury chose two UvA Thesis Prize winners: Oliviero Nardi and Jelmer Savelkoel. The winners receive 3000 euro, the other faculty winners receive 1000 euro each. Master students that graduated between 1 February 2021 and 1 February 2022 and who received a mark of 8.5 or higher for their thesis, could participate in the UvA Thesis Prize 2022.

The submission period for the UvA Thesis Award 2022 has closed.

The jury judged the submissions by quality and originality. ‘Judging the submissions each year is a lot of work but certainly no punishment’, says chairman of the 2020 jury Fred Weerman. ‘It is a pleasure to take note of interesting, original, well researched and well worded findings of students about the many different topics. The width of the fields of science of the UvA can also be seen in the theses. That is why it sometimes seems that we are comparing apples to pears, but the jury is very capable and usually in unison.’

Winners 2022

The UvA Thesis Prize 2022 is for Oliviero Nardi (Faculty of Science) and Jelmer Savelkoel (Faculty of Medicine/Amsterdam UMC). Oliviero received the prize for his thesis 'A Graph-Based-Algorithm for the Automated Justification of Collective Decisions'. And, Jelmer won the prize for his thesis 'A call to action: time to recognise melioidosis as a neglected tropical disease'.
